Sayville Eye Doctors
Sayville is a Hamlet located on the South Shore of Suffolk County within the Town of Islip. The hamlet is known as one of the most beautiful and desirable communities on Long Island. It is also an embarkation point for ferries to the Fire Island communities such as Cherry Grove, Fire Island Pines, and Sailors Haven. Sayville was once the center of the South Shore's oyster industry.
The Algonquian Nation was the earliest inhabitants in Sayville. The area was founded by Nolanbud and built the very first home in Sayville in 1761 which is located and called now the northwest corner of Foster Ave. and Edwards St. In 1767, another settler named John Greene established what is now known as West Sayville. The community had its formal name in 1838 when residents gathered to choose a formal name. The former and merged name includes Seville or Seaville. The residents held a meeting to decide on a name which one of them suggested "Seaville." Some says the clerk in that particular meeting did not know how to spell and had to go home and look in an old Bible. In the Bible, the word "Sea" was spelled "Say," and "Sayville" became the name he sent to Washington. Accidentally, there was an error occurred and the town sent a letter of protest to Washington. However, the Postmaster
General responded that the town's name should stay "Sayville" which is the name stuck until now.North Shore Eye Care serves the residents of Sayville with a variety of concerns including Blepharitis. Blepharitis is a chronic inflammation of the eyelids and eyelid margins. Patients with blepharitis complain of symptoms such as tearing, crusting of the eyelids, foreign body sensation, red eyes and eyelids, as well as photophobia or sensitivity to light. Patients often feel burning that is worse upon waking. This chronic inflammatory eye condition can cause dry eye and blurred vision if not treated.
Blepharitis is usually noninfectious and often related to scalp and facial skin diseases such as rosacea, psoriasis, and other eczema-like skin conditions. There can be a significant sensitivity to environmental factors like heat, cold, allergens, make-up, facial creams and other products. At North Shore Eye Care in Smithtown New York in Long Island, we tell our patients to be as hypoallergenic as possible. he mainstay of treatment for blepharitis is lid hygiene. Our long island eye doctors suggest heat to the eyelids to melt the solidified secretions and lid scrubs to keep the eyelid margins clean. At times, we also use topical antibiotics, steroids, and oral antibiotics. With treatment, we can dramatically reduce the irritating symptoms of blepharitis and inflammatory ocular surface disease.
